Welcome to Berkeley City Ballet

BCB is celebrating 50 years! 

Established in 1974, Berkeley City Ballet remains a consistent and enduring part of the city of Berkeley. Berkeley City Ballet is committed to the mission of bringing cultural enrichment, as well as an awareness and appreciation for the art of dance, to the diverse East Bay.

We offer classes for dancers ages 2.5 and up! Learn more about our classes here and attend a free trial class anytime.

BCB appreciates your patronage!
As a small, local, non-profit of 50 years, we rely heavily on your support to continue to be able to offer classes and employ teachers. BCB can't do this without you! Help keep BCB dancing by enrolling in classes and/or donating to our school here.

We look forward to dancing with you!


"Berkeley City Ballet is the best school to learn real ballet. It is the most thorough and consistent ballet program in the East Bay."
